It has become even more apparent to me that my time is my money, and that our sense of identity is tightly linked to our concept of money and the value we place on our time and ourselves. If I spend so much time and energy making money, surely I should spend a significant amount of time managing my money?

Today felt like any other day. The normal slog. Until, that is, I sat on my train home and flicked through my Facebook feed on my phone. Someone shared a photo of themselves at graduation a year ago today... at my graduation... a year ago?!

Someone asked me the other day what motivates me to stay in shape. Call me fickle, but my answer tends to change on a daily basis. I mean, much though I might scoff at a 'no carbs before Marbs' type situation, I'll admit that my tendency towards toning quite vastly increases as summer approaches.

Success is made up of hard work, commitment and passion but perhaps one of the most crucial factors to take into account is who we choose to surround ourselves with. As the old adage goes, 'you are who you hang out with' and the people we invite into our world on a daily basis can impact the way we think, feel and act.

Grace Olivia Parry | Posted 03.05.2016 | UK Lifestyle
Grace Olivia Parry

Have you ever tried forcing something in life? Something unrelated to productivity levels, in this instance? What happens? My guess is, like pretty much every time, it fails. Things can only happen in life if we truly want them to. If we start to follow a path lined with uncertainly, it's never going to work out.

Most companies I worked for expected their employees to be accessible by email, skype or phone both during and outside of the working hours. In other words, I had to constantly check my devices to make sure I don't miss anything important.

There are days when I feel so ill from treatment that I want to just lie on the sofa, but I still force myself to get up and dressed and take our lovely rescue dog for a walk because it is so important that there is joy (and nature!) in every day.

Firstly, most of us do not bother if another stutters, inserts an "um" mid-sentence, or fidgets a little. Yet for intelligent people like us, we know that a little slip-up could cost dearly. I'm going to focus mainly on public speaking as I think that's where most social blunders take place. Here are a few tips to get yourself in the best shape:

How to Fight Boredom

The school or work week easily sags into a void in productivity. Everything seems so routine, and it's hard to keep ourselves awake when we can do nothing but anticipate the same things repeatedly.

Maths Is Useful. How?

Things are not always what they seem. What have you been taught to accept without question? What have you tried not to explore? What have you been avoiding? Then go and find out the truth yourselves. You'll be surprised at the light you'll find.

Encourage effort over results: Show the pupil that it is effort that is valued more than the end result. Through effort, you can encourage a development of self motivation, the ability to decide on their own goals, and the curiosity to experiment with different methods to achieve outcomes.

Rachel Bridge | Posted 26.02.2016 | UK Lifestyle

The problem is that this cartoon image of ambition is not what true ambition is about at all. In reality, ambition is simply the desire to make the most of your potential to achieve something special, which would make a profound difference to your life and to those of others, whether that be through success, achievement or distinction.
